Keynote Plenary Session:
"Scalability Challenges for Future Multi/Many-core Architectures"
Per Stenström, Chalmers University of Technology,
Goteborg, Sweden

Technology forecasts continue to predict a biennial doubling of the number of processor cores for the next ten years. But the road forward to unleash their computational power to application performance will be increasingly challenging. Some of these challenges concern 1) how architects can provide a more productive interface to the software 2) how the memory system can be architected so that memory bandwidth can scale up exponentially and 3) how to use transistors to make the whole chip infrastructure scalable to a large number of processor cores. This talk will focus on these challenges and highlight a few recent developments that tackle them.

DAY 2, February 25, 2011, Morning Sessions


Keynote Plenary Session:
"Microprocessor architecture and Process Variability, challenges and opportunities"
Giuseppe Desoli, Advanced Systems Technology, STMicroelectronics,

With ever shrinking device geometries in deep sub-nanometer technologies, the effects of on­chip variations more deeply affect digital circuit behavior. Variations arise from fluctuations associated to the manufacturing process such as in channel length, oxide thickness, threshold voltage, doping concentration, etc. It is now generally understood in the VLSI design and EDA community and industry that those are serious problems affecting yield, operating conditions (e.g., supply voltage or temperature), timing and power, so much that a variation tolerant design is key for next generation devices. However effective design and process improvements can be at reducing the adverse effects of variability, time is quickly approaching for microprocessors and SoC architects to be summoned to this battle. This talk will provide a quick overview of how tackling the problem at a higher level can help; starting from an analysis of the relevant phenomena and their impact once projected at the architecture level; and then illustrating some of the current state of the art proposed solution both in academia and industry.
